George Rhodes fights Peter McGurk in Scunthorpe on Saturday

Rhodes is itching to get back in the ring after his draw with Steven Backhouse in September, and he meets Long Eaton’s McGurk at The Baths Hall in Scunthorpe on Saturday night.

The Westway-based boxer said: “Training has gone well, I’ve had some great sparring and I just want to get in there now.

“I don’t know much about McGurk, but he’s unbeaten, so it will be good to get a win over him on my record.”
